Our coastal communities are densely populated, with over 50% of the nation’s population on 20% of its landmass. From 1970 to 2010, coastal populations increased by 39% and this trend has continued. Producing more than $9 trillion in goods and services, our coastal communities represent a vital component of the national economy. Faced with the challenges posed by sea level rise, more frequent and intense storms, and population growth, a comprehensive approach to coastal planning and adaptation is imperative for the long-term survival of our coastal communities.
